Whitest Kids' Timmy Williams: “I Want to be a Comedian-Farmer"

Timmy Williams, his wife, and chickens | The Oregonian

We learned recently that The Whitest Kids U' Know's Timmy Williams has said "No More!" to the bustle of New York. He's moved to Portland, Oregon to raise delicious chickens and live off the land. A revealing profile in The Oregonian tells all:

The newest urban farmer in Rose City is also a TV star. Williams, 28, is one-fifth of The Whitest Kids U’Know, a New York-based comedy troupe he joined as a college student in 2001.

The group is still together, and Williams will soon rejoin his mates to write and shoot their show’s fifth season. But he won’t be away for long: Portland’s relaxed pace, and the balance between funky oddities, cosmopolitan culture and the balm of nature, won him and his wife Kristin, 30, over for good.“We want to grow our own food, raise our own animals and make stuff on our own. We’ve already made our own cheese, our own pickles and pizza dough.”

--The Tribeca Film Festival begins next week and the best part is you can enjoy all the fest's glamour and razzle dazzle without leaving your flip n' fuck.  The TFF is streaming some of its films online; smart idea!  A couple of movies on the schedule have caught our eye: Beware The Gonzo with James Urbaniak and Amy Sedaris, Saturday Night, an SNL doc directed by James Franco, The Trotsky with Jay Baruchel, and a quirky Irish offering called Zonad:

--Since we're one of the 800,000 households who've cut the cable cord, we've been missing Nick Stevens and Matt McCarthy's banter in AMC's Action Pack interstitials. Have these been around for a while?

--There's a Penelope Princess of Pets viewing party at Union Pool slated for Monday night, April 26th. Mark it.

--The Whitest Kids U Know Season 4, which was pushed back from a January release to June 2010, is under production still; shooting continues in New York soon.

--In NVW yesterday, we featured Tesla's new episodic documentary that hopes to showcase various scenesters in the NYC indie improv world. We asked series creator Justin Noble what the plan is and he said,  "It's filmed at Tesla's monthly show, and it introduces improv teams through onstage highlights and backstage interviews. Our April show was last weekend and a ridiculous crowd turned out--about 120 in total.  For the 2nd video, we'll be focusing on the ladies of M.A.D. and a new team of smart younger kids called Malibu Radley."
